Undogaho Magazine was published by Toyokuni Sha. Each of the 15 cards in this tan bordered premium set can be found with either a green tint or brown tint image. Backs are generally blank, but there is also a scoreboard back version. This card of Kaku Akagi is the brown tint, blank back version.
Not much is known about this player other than the fact that he was a left handed pitcher for Meiji University in the Tokyo Big Six University League during the period 1929-1932. In fact, we are not even certain that his first name was pronounced as Kaku! We also know that despite the fact that he wasn't a superstar, he appeared on several baseball cards of the era. This is only the second copy of this card that we have ever auctioned as a single card. The last time we offered an example of this card was in 2009. This is an opportunity for you to add a beautiful prewar premium card to your collection. Blank backed card.
